    Default Blowproof Bellhousing

    I build the engines for an Alfa Romeo spider that we've been running at Bonneville for the last 10 years. We started with an Alfa transmission, but quickly found out that it couldn't handle the horsepower of the turbocharged engine . . . so the replacement (Muncie M22) required a custom bellhousing. I also decided to move the starter behind the ring gear to make room for a larger intercooler.

    Here's the finished product . . . made from 1/4 inch mild steel.

    Default Gas Can Hauler

    I made a gasoline can hauler that fits a 2" receiver few weeks ago. I hate hauling gas cans inside a SUV. It's also useful on the pickup, you don't need to tie the cans to the bed of the truck.
    It was quick and cheep to build. The angle iron is a used bed frame, very hard to drill holes in it but it welded up fine with 6011 rods. Even used one of the hinged section from the bed frame to lock the two 5 gallon cans in place.

    Your skills at fabrication are great.
    How long did it take to make?

    Default Chicken Plucker

    I decided to build a machine to pluck chickens after trying to do a few by hand. When I started building it I had no specific plans and just started welding the frame from what I had imagined I wanted it to look like. I had researched it a lot so I knew what I wanted, just didn't know how it would turn out exactly. I was very happy with the end result. This is the finished product but I have more pictures and video links on my signature.

    When you fill the cans, do you remove them from the rack and place on the ground to fill?
